Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9 degrees F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.
An international team of climate scientists, working on the NEEM research project, has just completed their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile deep vertical core of solid ice in Greenland, looking for clues about ancient and future climates. In July of 2009, Dr. Heidi Cullen traveled to Greenland with a production team from StormCenter Communications to visit the team, and discuss their findings.
